    Default influenza-like illness

    No estoy segura si esto se traduce como "enfermedad pseudogripal" o como "enfermedad similar a la gripe"; encontré que la primera definición se refiere más bien a una enfermedad causada por el virus del nilo occidental; algo distinto de lo que busco, que está relacionado con la enfermedad causada con el virus de la influenza. En inglés ILI (influenza-like illness) se define así:
    ILI is a nonspecific respiratory illness characterized by fever, fatigue, cough, and other symptoms. The majority of ILI cases is not caused by influenza but by other viruses (e.g., rhinoviruses and respiratory syncytial virus [RSV]), adenoviruses, and parainfluenza viruses). Less common causes of ILI include bacteria such as Legionella spp., Chlamydia pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, and Streptococcus pneumoniae. Influenza, RSV, and certain bacterial infections are particularly important causes of ILI because these infections can lead to serious complications requiring hospitalization (2--4). Yearly, adults and children can average one to three and three to six ILI, respectively (5).

    Gracias por su ayuda!!

    Hola!
    “enfermedad parecida a la gripe” o "enfermedad similar a la gripe" son los términos más usados. Pero yo creo que también podría ser "síndrome gripal" o "síndrome pseudogripal". Podés ver más acá: http://www.fluwikie.com/index.php?n=...fluenzaPrimerI

    Hope it helps!

    Hola Lucia!
    Si, mem tiene razón, yo también lo he visto como EPG (enfermedad parecida a la gripe).

    Ojalá sirva!

    Sí, Mem tiene razón una vez más. La OMS la define como "Síndrome Gripal".

    Nunca es tarde para aprender......
    Mi aporte es sobre la influenza, asi podes sacar asociaciones respecto a tu tema
    Influenza (also called the grippe or the flu), an acute, highly contagious infection of the respiratory tract, results from three different types of Myxovirus influenzae. It occurs sporadically or in epidemics (usually during the colder months). Epidemics tend to peak within 2 to 3 weeks after initial cases and subside within a monthca es tarde para responderte
    Influenza viruses are classified into three groups:
    ❑Type A, the most prevalent, strikes every year, with new serotypes causing epidemics every 3 years.
    ❑Type B also strikes annually but causes epidemics only every 4 to 6 years.
    ❑Type C is endemic and causes only sporadic cases.

    De seguir necesitando informacion avisame que sigo buscando.
